Make-up for Joker Cosplay?

Recommended Posts

Just this last September, I cosplayed as the Joker for comic-con.  I used regular grease paint and Snazaroo face paints.  However, I soon found out that wearing a lot of grease paint is 1} very uncomfortable (my face was tickling like crazy!) and 2} the stuff smears rather easily.  This would be okay if I was going for the messy Heath Ledger look, but I was going for the classic comic look (I'll post pictures down below for reference.)  

 

I'm planning to go to comic-con again this coming spring, and I was wondering if you guys might be able to help me figure out what make-up to use to make it both convincing and comfortable to wear.  I did a little bit of research online, and I'm thinking of using powder makeup because it looks natural on the skin.  Overall, I want the skin color to be similar to Jared Leto's Joker, more pale than just flat out white, but still white enough.  I also want make-up that won't crack either.

 

I'm also wondering what hair dye I should get.  I kind of want my hair to be a bright candy green, something that really stands out.  The dye I used last time wasn't exactly what I wanted.

 

What would you guys suggest?

it doesn't matter what you paint your face with, it is always going to be uncomfortable, especially on stage. I felt like my face is dipped in boiling chocolate when I used to perform on stage. I have heard of a few homemade solutions. But, not sure whether it will fade or wear off while you are performing.

Please share the images by the way.

    • It's Sunday. I don't feel said about anything, except for worrying about by elderly father catching coronavirus, because I could not stand to see him suffer, and feeling sad when I hear about the people who passed away. I feel lucky I still have my job, and they even gave my full hours back. Hours have been cut pretty much since December. My Dad asked me to find out when senior shopping time is, and my heart went out to him. Then he came back from shopping and he was happy, because he found cleaning wipes and groceries. He got me M&Ms. Maybe I get my love of shopping from my folks, lol. All I can think of is that stimulus check we're going to get, how if my job keeps on, I can use that to pay a credit card off, oh, that would be so amazing! And trying to use up my 2017 samples. My little hopes and dreams are surviving. Last night I went to visit my friend who lives alone. She said, I'm so depressed because I'm alone in the house. I said, that's what you need to stay alive right now. It is an advantage. But she did not see how that was a good thing.  Also I was watching a Sophie Shohet video on YouTube and in the comments someone had a good tip: keep nails really short, as long nails can get germs under them that may not come off when you wash hands.
